Make a St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Party Plate

St. Patrick's Day Mod Podge Plate

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that doesn’t get enough crafty attention. Green is one of my favorite colors, so I will take any opportunity to use it in my projects — and St. Paddy’s is perfect. I’ve pulled together a lucky four-leaf clover plate that you can make in an afternoon. The best part? Children can get involved! Mod Podge is non-toxic and child safe, so they will love helping you craft this for a St. Patrick’s Day party or dinner. I recommend getting your plate at a thrift store and using green scrap paper for a truly budget friendly project.

    Gather Your Supplies
    You'll need a glass plate, Mod Podge, paintbrushes, green paper (you can use scraps), a circle punch, paper doilies and scissors.
  • Punch the Paper 2 of 10
    Punch the Paper
    Use the circle punch to punch out several circles in various shades of green. Punch about 20 circles out of each sheet.
  • Paint the Plate 3 of 10
    Paint the Plate
    Make sure your plate is clean first. Add a medium layer of Mod Podge to the back of the plate.
  • Place Your Circles 4 of 10
    Place Your Circles
    Place the circles down on the back of the plate to form a four-leaf clover. If you don't like where a circle is, pick it up quickly and move it. Add more Mod Podge as needed.
  • Let Dry 5 of 10
    Let Dry
    The finished four-leaf clover design will look like this. Let it dry for several hours.

    Start in the middle and add a medium layer of Mod Podge to a small section of the plate.
  • Place a Doily 7 of 10
    Place a Doily
    Add a paper doily on top of the Mod Podge. Dip in Mod Podge again and paint over the back.
  • Repeat to Finish 8 of 10
    Repeat to Finish
    Repeat until the back of the plate is covered in doilies. Keep adding Mod Podge, but remember that the more Mod Podge you use, the longer it will take for the plate to dry.
  • Trim the Edges 9 of 10
    Trim the Edges
    Your doilies overlap the edge, so you'll need to trim the excess with scissors. Then put two more layers of Mod Podge over the doilies.
  • Finished Plate 10 of 10
    Finished Plate
    Use your plate for cookies, pie or any other St. Paddy's treats! Remember to hand wash the top of the plate only. It is not dishwasher safe.
